Having some kind of activity monitor - a pedometer, a heart rate monitor, and currently, my Fitbit has really helped me to keep track of how much I move. Some days, I reach my goal without realizing it and other days I haven't moved as much as I thought. It is a great way to motivate yourself to get out and exercise.
An inexpensive pedometer will give you the feedback you need, if you don't want to invest in something expensive.
